Subject: great energy at Nassau Coliseum!!
This is one of my favorite shows of the 70 that I saw between 73-95. I caught all 4 shows that week, the 2 at MSG and the next night at Nassau, the MSG shows were OK but this was the keeper, great long first set - loved the band when they were not in any hurry to finish the first set. Second set is an epic all time great with a hot Shakedown Street (Phil adds after - "that was Shakedown Street and you know it well!). Miracle / Bertha/ Good Lovin might have been played a lot during that time but that is a great combo , would much rather hear than Sailor/Saint!! When they started Dark Star my jaw dropped this would be the only time I heard it live, and was just as it should be, long and spacey. I was behind the stage during the song, and drums/space, since Nassau was smaller than some other arenas it was a great place to see the rhythm devils. Wharf Rat & St Stephen - I never got a chance to hear some of the songs the Dead played (Watchtower was one) but I was lucky enough to hear St Stephen played 5 times. Nassau had some great shows, had that great New York energy plus the parking lot scene that was missed at MSG. This show, the fall 79 shows, the May 1980 run, and 5/6/81, all great times for the band, and us too.

Subject: Dark Star
I love this Dark Star. I've just listen to this and the News Years one 10 days early - this one's better! Some might say I'm crazy, but it's true!

The rest of the show is dynomite!

One of my all time favorite shows. Great from start to finish. So grateful to see this show. The Dark Star and St. Stephen (both rare for this period of time) speak for themselves. The Shakedown Street to open the 2nd set really set the tone. The drums after Dark Star were one of a handful I saw that really kept me engaged.

Forever grateful to Mr. Miller for bringing this and so many other shows back to life

This show is in a class of it's own. Fantastic guitar work from Garcia and a dream set list.
Music Never Stopped could be the best ever. Dark Star is special, no doubt.Miracle is perfect AND this is the last great Saint Stephen. Jerry was on a mission from November through January...

The correct patch source is actually Nakamichi 300/CP1 mics.

Just to be clear, this recording was made FRONT OF BOARD with TWO Sony 54P Microphones. There was a THIRD microphone. It was a SINGLE Sennheiser 441. They were all fed into a Nakamichi 550 where the blend was performed. The stereo mixdown feed went into Bob Wagner's Sony TC-158SD Stereo Cassette Deck.
